Maximum Bids:

This is the amount you are willing to pay if others are bidding against you.  Maximum bids are not visible – if someone bids against you our website will automatically place bids on your behalf using the automatic bid increment amounts.  For example:

Example 1: if the current bid is £250, and you place a maximum bid of £500, the bid will automatically increase by the set £50 increment,  to £300.  If no one else bids for the work it is yours for £300. If additional bids are placed our system will automatically increase your bid by £50,  to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until bidding reaches your maximum bid.  You will be informed by email when our system places a bid on your behalf. 

Example 2: if the current bid is £1,000, and you place a maximum bid of £3,000, the bid will automatically increase by the set increment of £100, to £1,100.  If no one else bids for the work it is yours for £1,100.  If additional bids are placed our system will automatically increase your bid by £100,  to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until bidding reaches your maximum bid.  You will be informed by email when our system places a bid on your behalf.
